New Stability tester found.

Recommended Posts

So I installed and opened up the Epic games launcher today. Shortly after this I noticed my fans are ramping up. With a quick check I noticed that the Epic Games launcher, while open on the desktop, was ramping things up to 95-100% load. 

Not that this is a new thing. Apparently this has been going on sense Epic games launcher 2.90

 

So fun fact. Want a light stability tester? Install the epic games launcher and leave it open on the desktop. Works great. :whistling:

I had to install it last week for RDR2, just opened it and nothing unusual with mine, although I never run the game from it as it has to connect to rockstar anyway so I just use the RS launcher.

Hmm..  I haven't noticed it increasing CPU load yet and I've been using it the launcher since day 1.

Same. Could be a weird combination including EGS though, or something else entirely. For example, recently after a restart the fans in my computer were running a bit high for idle. Nothing unusual temperature wise, and they weren't running louder than they would with an actual load, but doing so at idle, so I left it. Restarted earlier today (installing the new AMD drivers) and they are as quiet as they normally are.

Funny enough After boot this evening its not doing it anymore. 

Thanks for the replies gents. This was really just as funny as it was strange to me.

Bit late, I know, but would this ramp up work with a CPU water cooler pump?
